Welcome to Sustainable Communities
Our intertwined social and ecological communities require strong visions of justice and sustainability in response to today’s, and tomorrow’s, complex challenges. Students in the Sustainable Communities program dig into the root causes of these challenges through deep study, praxis, and hands-on opportunities for community leadership and transformation. The program cultivates dynamic, well-rounded leaders in sustainability, civic engagement, interdisciplinary research, applied scholarship, and social justice.
Our graduate students earn a Master of Arts degree, typically in two years. We also offer an undergraduate minor in Civic Engagement.
